Minnesota WIC Program to Offer Healthier Food Choices to Women, Infants and Children (Aug. 1st, 2009)
The Minnesota Department of Health Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Nutrition Program announced it will begin offering new, healthy food choices on August 1.
The 141,000 women, infants and young children participating in the program will be able to receive a variety of healthier foods, including fresh, frozen and canned fruits and vegetables; whole grain products such as bread, tortillas, brown rice and oatmeal; jarred baby foods and soy beverages; and tofu. Skim and one-percent milk will be offered to all women and children over the age of two. Organic fruits and vegetables and other organic WIC-allowed products that are priced similarly to their non-organic counterparts will also be available.
For more information about the Minnesota WIC Program and the new food package, see the Minnesota WIC Website.
